  • Willing to promote from Senior Associate to Partner 
  • No following required as plenty of work available – extremely rare 
  • Work from home three days per week 
  • No corporate work 
  • Top-tier Legal 500 firm 
  • Fantastic benefits package, includes bonus, mobile, laptop, free parking, healthcare 

We are delighted to bring to market this opportunity for a Commercial Solicitor to join a top-tier Legal 500 firm in Manchester at Partner level. 

Very rarely for an opportunity at this level and with the associated salary and benefits, there is no requirement to bring a following with you.  

You’ll join a growing but well-balanced team consisting of one other partner, two mid-level lawyers and two junior lawyers.   

The firm offers a truly flexible hybrid working policy and you’ll be able to work from home for three days per week, plus flexitime – making this role fantastic for anyone with caregiving responsibilities or looking for a role with greater trust. 

Your caseload will consist purely of commercial contract work (no corporate transactions) for a client base of entrepreneurs, SMEs and OMBs, including high-profile tech, media, hospitality, retail and sports clients.  

You will be supported in further growing your profile, featuring in regional and national press, and with submissions for the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partner directories, as well as regional and national awards.  

The firm has a first-class reputation in the region and has won multiple business and employer awards in recent years. It prides itself on its culture and the work/life balance offered to its team members, who enjoy positive working and social relationships with their colleagues across the firm.  

Many lawyers join this firm from national and international law firms, seeking the same high quality, complex, interesting work (or better!) with a much-improved work/life balance.
